The sum of digits in a two-digit number is 14. If you double the reversed number and add the result to the original number, the sum would be 222. Find the original number.
Let the ten's digit of the original be x and the one'e digit be y.
The value of the original number is: 10x + y
The value of the reversed number is: 10y + x
If you double the reversed number and add the result to the original number, you get 222:
This equation is: 2(10y + x) + (10x + y) = 222
20y + 2x + 10x + y = 222
12x + 21y = 222
4x + 7y = 74
Since the sum of the digits of the number is 14: x + y = 14
Combining these two equations: 4x + 7y = 74 ---> 4x + 7y = 74
x + y = 14 ---> x -4 ---> -4x - 4y = -56
Adding down the columns; 3y = 18
y = 6
Since x + y = 14: x = 8
